    You might also be interested in an app called Voice Candy.

    You can also use equalizer settings.

    Set the midrange frequency to max, set all others to min - this will approximate what you're trying to do.

    Then experiment with a touch of distortion or overdrive on top of that EQ to give it that crunchy, hard-to-understand feel.

    Cutting the bass all the way to minimum in EQ will simulate a high-pass filter. I'm not sure whether a true filter is available in GarageBand for "real instrument" (audio) tracks; when I get back home to my iMac, I'll check.

    EDIT: Whaddayaknow... there are filters in the Effects section for Real Instrument tracks. Look in the Audio Units sublist for AUFilter, AUHighShelfFilter, AUBandpass, etc. However, the AUFilter by itself has enough settings to create a Bandpass or a Band Reject filter. (I'll have to note this for future reference...)
